This was a series I was doing and I really should try and finish it some time, I think there’s about ten characters or so to go.
I really loved the Masters of the Universe, it’s such a rich set of colourful characters which made me want to draw them in the first place. I have a few already inked and some pencil sketches so I will get back into it but I also just wanted somewhere to collect them all in one place.
I used to do these for the Star Trek TOS episodes (there’s a lot of episodes though in one season of TOS) so I’m going to resurrect these pencil & watercolour episode posters for my rewatch of The Orville. Apparently, we’re not seeing new The Orville until December which is a long time between drinks LOL.
Thought this was a great first episode and it holds so much promise for a rich universe to discover.
I fell in love with Dark Matter almost instantly but sadly right now the only legal way I can finish watching the series is by buying it on iTunes and my budget for media is pretty tight these days so buying individual shows is not on the cards. So sadly I’ll wait until one of my THREE streaming services get it so I can finish that journey.
This was suggested by Paul over on Patreon and was really fun to do. I’m really enjoying these so we’ll see what else they come up with.
I haven’t done enough The Orville fan art and with the Star Trek 365 going on this year I wanted to make sure I was doing other stuff along side the project.
This is from the episode Old Wounds and it’s a wonderful scene showing off the potential for this new show taking the Star Trek sensibilities further with more accessible CGI and broader ideas around what aliens should look like. The show benefits from not having the “rules” or baggage that Trek has and it’s obviously a labour of love.
Just like apparently everyone else I binged watched season 2 of Stranger Things over the weekend, I mean it was hard not to. This show is so well put together and the characters are all so damn lovable it’s hard not to get sucked into their story.
I think I enjoyed this season more than the first and that’s really saying something.
Normally I would do Drawlloween but this year I spent most of October in the Tasmanian wilderness so I didn’t get the chance to take part, so my only Halloween drawing for the season will be this one!
I’m excited about Stranger Things season 2 because yes the first season was exceptionally good but two there’s obviously a significant amount of nostalgia coming from that second season (Ghostbusters costumes). It’s interesting for me because they are around my age so I remember Ghostbusters being huge and Gremlins and The Neverending Story (1984 was an exceptional year for films).
It’s a byproduct of getting older LOL nostalgia films and the romanticism of the era you grew up in.
These sketchcards were done earlier this year, a combination of markers, watercolour and a touch of prismacolor pencils :).
